Audrey's Kitchen began with a series of medical device startups originating from Gerald E. McGinnis's expertise and from connections formed in his Respironics years. Due to a difficult financing and regulatory environment, our partnership began adding software, materiel, consumer products, internet platform technologies, and by placing funds in local and national real estate deals to the portfolio.
In 2010, Gerald McGinnis sold a portion of his investments to his children and grandchildren for the purpose of creating an entrepreneurial investment fund. Alicia McGinnis, his daughter, was chosen as first general partner. The family office is located in Nova Place in Pittsburgh.
